LynB Designs: The Bright Side Collection

Press Sample

Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope this post finds you well and you've had a wonderful weekend! To kick off the week, I wanted to share the upcoming LynB Designs collection. Inspired by Always Look on the Bright Side of Life by Monty Python, The Bright Side Collection consists of eleven beautiful shades; there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy! Let's jump in and check them out!

Some Things in Life are Bad
Three coats plus top coat

Deep green crelly with contrasting purple shimmer and silver galaxy holo.

Some things may be bad, but this polish certainly isn't one of them! This polish is stunning and one of my favorites from this collection. The formula is fantastic and this shade applied like a dream!

Retail: $10


Other Things Just Make You Sweat and Curse
Three coats plus top coat

Bright red jelly base with linear holo and pinky red shimmer

Retail: $10

I love glittery jelly shades, so I am so excited to see this as part of the collection! It is easy to apply but take care not to overwork the formula as it does get harder to work with if overworked. This is such a happy polish and makes me ready for spring!


Don't Grumble, Give a Whistle
Three coats plus top coat

Thistle colored crelly with holo shimmer and gunmetal flakies

Retail: $10

I'm not overall a fan of lighter purple polishes, but I am taken by this beauty! I just love the addition of the shimmer and flakies, and there is just the perfect amount to make it fun and interesting. The formula is a little on the thinner side so you may need to take caution so as to not have flooding on your cuticles and side walls, but overall it has a great formula!


Laugh and Smile and Dance and Sing
Three coats plus top coat

Periwinkle blue crelly with purple glow and shimmer

Retail: $8

Laugh and Smile and Dance and Sing is such a pretty colour, and I love to see how much it glows! That being said, the formula is a little tricky to work with and does require some patience. I had some trouble getting it to apply evenly and smoothly, as you may notice from the photos. Pastels are admitedly not my strong suit so you may have more luck with application than I did.


Don't Be Silly Chumps
Three coats plus top coat

Medium cool toned purple crelly base with shimmer that shifts from blue to gold to green

Retail: $10

This polish is exquisite and another one of my favorites from the collection! The formula is fantastic as well and applies easily with minimal effort required.


Death's the Final Word
Three coats plus top coat

Tan creme base with glow and shimmer that shifts from pink to silver to green

Retail: $10

Who knew that death would come with so much glow?!? This polish is stunning and one of the highlights from the collection. The formula is fantastic and easy to work with, although you do have to take care not to press to much with the brush which can result in a little uneveness.


Life's a Laugh and Death's a Joke It's True
Three coats plus top coat

Deep brown jelly base with gold and bronze flakies

Retail: $8

This colour is one of the most unique in my collection, and while it is admitedly not for everyone, I quite like it! It also applies smoothly and easily so I am happy to report it has a fantastic formula.


What've You Lost? Nothing
Three coats plus top coat

Pale grey creme base with golden shimmer and small golden flakes

Retail: $8

What a pretty colour! While it looks a little more grey in the bottle, it looks much more subtle against my olive skin tone. This is one of those shades that your skin colouring will dictate just how grey it looks, and I can promise it is definitely worth giving some love. The final look is so beautiful and soft and one of the must haves of the collection.


You'll See It's All a Show
Three coats plus top coat

Super sparkly pink crelly with pink galaxy holo glitters and berry galaxy holo glitters

Retail: $10

Fewer things scream spring more than a vibrant pink shade, and I adore the addition of the galaxy holo glitters! It's fun and bright, and the formula is really fabulous.


Give the Audience a Grin
Three coats plus top coat

Red orange jelly base with linear holo and red gold glass fleck

Retail: $10

I am completely in love with this polish, but then as an avid orange lover, I'm sure that comes as no surprise to anyone. I'm also happy to report that the formula is superb and it is another standout from the collection.


Life's a Piece of S**t
Two coats plus top coat

Red toned brown crelly base with intense linear holo

Retail: $10

Life may be shit from time to time, but this polish certainly isn't! This colour is warm and comforting, and the formula is fabulous and on point.

  1. This collection makes me happy because I remember watching Monty Python movies as a kid. No one seems to know this song is from The Life of Brian though. "I'm Brian and so's my wife!"
